Kartarpur Corridor, a must visit religious destination

The Kartarpur Corridor started between India and Pakistan on 9 November. The Kartarpur Corridor is actually a 4 lane highway built to visit the pilgrimage center of Sikhism. It goes to Kartarpur where Gurdwara Darbar Sahib is in the Punjab province of Pakistan. It is also called Kartarpur Sahib which is the largest gurdwara in the whole world. It was here that Guru Nanak started Sikhism and the present gurudwara is located where Guru Nanak breathed his last. It is situated on the border of Pakistan and India and hence its importance is very high. Because it is the death place of Guru Nanak, people of Sikhism have been seeking permission to visit here for a long time.

A corridor is to be built between the Kartarpur Gurdwara and Dera Baba Nanak Sahib (located in Punjab, India) for which a 4.7-km corridor will be built along the Pakistan and India border, which will allow pilgrims to visit Pakistan without a visa. After the construction of this corridor, the long journey of Sikh pilgrims will end. Now to go to Kartarpur Gurdwara, travelers first have to go to Lahore and then travel 125 km by bus. While you can see Kartarpur Gurdwara from the border of India with the help of telescope, it is so close.

Kartarpur Sahib is not a tourist destination but a pilgrimage place, so the government has made special arrangements for it. So far, you could register by logging on to the website https://prakashpurb550.mha.gov.in/kpr/. However, these registrations are currently closed and further details will be given about it only after the first batch is successfully completed. Apart from this, some official tour operators can also get a tour for this corridor. However, they will have to take the NOC from the Government of Pakistan and hence not every tour operator can get it done. Visa is not required for Indian tourists. However, if a Sikh is coming from another country, he will have to get a visa from Lahore.
